2nd Annual Take Your (Doggy) Daughter to Work Day

Jaya at the office, originally uploaded by maggie1000.

This time, Dan took our love to his new job at Schmatic. Thank you again "Maggie1000" for taking this awesome shot. I'm glad it wasn't Dan getting some shut-eye under his desk ;)

Hey, Jennifer! My dog and I are going to be moving to Sunset Park in October. Does your dog always go to work with you, or do you have a trusted dog walker that you would recommend?

Hey M: No, unfortunately my husband and I can't take Jaya to work everyday. Send me an email and I'll send you more information on our dog walker. Just not sure she'd want her information published here. Congrats on moving to the neighborhood! I'd love to meet you and your dog, I'm sure - Jennifer

Greetings! Please see the recent Brooklyn incidents; please disseminate this vital public service to preclude more tragedies. Many thanks.


Just so you know, I confer with Con Edison's Stray Voltage and Public Affairs Units and contribute to Wet Nose Guide and New York Dog Chat.


Blair Sorrel, Founder

Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize an unsuspecting dog, walker, or both. No dog lover could possibly observe a more horrifying scene than witnessing his beloved pet instantaneously maimed or tragically electrocuted. When you exercise your pooch, please exercise greater prudence. Common outdoor electrical and metal fixtures may shock or even kill your vulnerable dog. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. But you can, indeed, self-protect.

Just start to adopt this simple strategy — EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND AVOID A SHOCK. Take a few seconds and make your trajectory toward generally safer, free standing, non-conductive surfaces, ie., plastic, wood, cardboard. Intuit your dog’s cues and if it’s resistant, change directions. Work site perimeters may be live so try to elude them. If necessary, switch sides of the street or your hands when leading to skirt hazards. If you traverse the same route, you may memorize locations of potential dangers. Carry your pooch when in doubt. Consider indoor restroom products like PottyPark when external conditions are chancy or RopeNGo’s hardware-free leash and harness. And don’t rely on dog booties as a palliative as they will actually put your pet at even greater risk since the dog can’t tell you they’re leaking! To learn to more, please see StreetZaps. A safer walk is yours year round if you are willing to open to your eyes and mind to it.
